A true magical winter season,­ the Gstaad Palace celebrates 110 years

Once upon a time, exactly on the 8th of December 1913, the Gstaad Palace opened its doors to what has become a real fairy-tale destination. For 110 years, season after season we have been lucky to welcome so many wonderful guests to our home up in the Alps.

As we love to create memories,

for this winter season 2023 – 2024 we have planned a programme that our guests will definitely remember. First things first, let’s celebrate Christmas: around our Christmas dinner on the 24th we have planned several children activities starting from the 15th of December. This year our “Very Important Kids” will make their own Christmas ornaments, enjoy a crèpes afternoon, meet the reindeers and of course Santa Claus, bake cookies and “Zopf Bread”, learn how to make mocktails, and on top, party all afternoon long at the Children’s New Year’s Party at GreenGo!

“Where words leave off,
music begins.”

Heinrich Heine

From Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, to Michael Jackson, music has always taken centre stage at the Gstaad Palace. Then and now, live entertainment has been the cherry on top of the dining experience in our restaurants. This winter season, enjoy our live night shows with Ensemble Scherzo, Jean-Pierre Verdolini Jazz and the Knights Club among many other bands. And surely don’t miss our Seafood Brunch every Sunday of February, as well accompanied with live entertainment.
